Hyderabad, Feb 11: Umesh Yadav rattled Bangladesh batsmen with pace while Ishant Sharma got some reverse swing as the visitors were left struggling at 125/4 at lunch on the third day of the one-off cricket Test against India here.
Bangladesh need another 363 runs to avoid follow-on which is highly unlikely looking at the apparent discomfort that their batsmen endured while facing the Indian speedsters.
India had scored a mammoth 687 for 6 in their first innings.
The first session of the third day certainly belonged to Umesh, who worked up good pace for a consistent period of time.
The only batsman who had looked comfortable was Tamim Iqbal (25) and he was run-out after a horrible mix-up with Mominul Haque (12).
The miscommunication, while going for the second run, became Tamim's undoing as he could add only a run to his overnight score.
Mahmudullah Riyadh (28) and Mominul both were distinctly uncomfortable as Virat Kohli always employed the pace-spin attack from both ends.
After Umesh (2/33) bowled three overs from the pavilion end (the Shivlal Yadav End), Kohli cleverly switched him to the far end (VVS Laxman) from which he bowled another 6 overs at a stretch.
He continuously troubled both Mominul and Mahmudullah for a considerable period of time with his out-swingers.
After bowling a number of out-swingers, he got one to come back sharply into Mahmudullah, which trapped him in-front. India went for a DRS but it was an Umpires' Call despite the delivery grazing the leg stump.
But Umesh didn't lose heart and left-hander Mominul got a fuller delivery that came in after pitching. The umpire promptly adjudged leg before and the batsman didn't even take a review.
